Kenton does leave one with options. Therefore one is to employ the "slingshot" method to Tower Bridge

Lord Springthorpe-Chortleigh has annotated a set of Cribbits with solutions to knid and DH sojourns. Unfortunately, one misplaced one's copy when clearing the dungeons after the flood of '84. One cannot remember the date or the proper name by which the annotated notes are known, so unable to remedy one's current situation until this information becomes available and one is able to order a copy from one's local antique bookseller, as one believes it is now out of print.

Oh well...

Mr SRT I do believe that if I now play Camden Town, Cribbits allows you out of Dollis Hill but only in a clockwise direction and only on every third station. I'll leave you to suss out exactly where you can move as I don't have time, but good luck!

Hmm, well, hopefully, those directions [awfully good of you, Mr. Bear] will take us away from the dreaded Hill, away from knid [for now] and into a spiral of manic gameplay.

However, not wanting to be too predictable, I won't play the obvious: Angel, neither, shall I play Bank.

I, being Muppet, shall play Elephant and Castle.

Beat that with a stick

Seeing as we're still in peak hour time a lipmann's rule I shall call a double bluff on Mr Muppet to shunt us anticlockwise to a Monumental waaait for it......Bank

I believe the 2002 'Oyster' rules allow me a zone-hop to Colindale.

Herr Twotter,

It has come to pass that one has to bail you out yet again.(Where are those long awaited memoirs of a new year's day in creel?)

Perhaps one should direct you to the musings of the late Major Hector Postlethwaite of Sabden.He had an equally hard time as yourself combatting the loop and formed a quite extraordinarily escape gambit which involved the use of,no joking, a grey squirrel.

Perhaps one should consider refining one's tastes in biltong.

Hainault

And let this be the end of the DH debacle this month.One has studied it furiously and is more than conversant with associated escape gambits.

Tut tut...

Interesting play so far gents, glad to see we are finally out of the DH Loop.

I think that a Parsons' Slide is in order to minimise the chances of Creel;

In that case then one suggests a Mc Whelphead perpendicular (with Lv%reduction) towards...

Burnt oak.

One requests somebody use the Jodrell bank adjunct in order to curtail future threats of creel due to DH loop inconsistancies wrt Lv declension.

A pickled herring in the breast pocket of one's dinner jacket means one is able to use the Shetland Proviso in conjunction with Mr Prescott's decreasing Lv% to affect a Transverse Kick to

Now what do those colonials in the flat lands refer to as ''pickled herring''?

Infidel food one thinks!

Swift utilisatino of the ''frites het mayo'' variety of gambit.

Discounting the silliness of a play outside the bounds of MC (and which often kills the game), I have to follow Marylebone.

That's a bit of an issue.

Thanks a flipping bunch SRT.

Dollis Hill and I'm creeled.

Creeled? Bugger... Hmm, ok. This requires thought.


Stuck in a particularly vicious DH loop here, so, after consultation with my somewhat out-of-date almanac, I believe if I play Reverse back Hand, down the line, with a twist, I can get out of this.

I give you Wembley Park.

Excellent move, Mr Muppet. I see you have also cunningly inverted the Circle line so as to prevent any hatching or blocking outwith the Grosvenor Protocol (which I'm sure was your intention).

This leaves me free to move to Vauxhall, putting the third rail on the Jubilee line beyond its transversing position.

Sorry I can't be of more help, Mr Bear.

Ahem, yes, of course...


Vauxhall, I am glad to see, that gives me prime opportunity to play [as it is 18.00L Thursday] Finchley Road & Frognal.

Now, if the right combination of moves are played, Knid can be avoided, and all players in creel freed.

Who has the right guide though?

A fairly neutral lateral traverse to

Heron Quays

should keep things moving along...

Shephard's Bush, eh?

Well, I shall attempt a prime wriggle and get out of it...

Lateral hop, spiralling round the base, avoiding raising the Lv% and finally happen upon Cutty Sark.
